Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)

Enacted in 1991 to prevent unsolicited “robocalling,” texting and faxing by telemarketers, the TCPA has been broadly interpreted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and at the heart of countless lawsuits filed across the country against a variety of companies, from social networking companies and online service providers to pharmacies, school boards, entertainment companies, retailers and others. M&R frequently counsels advertisers on ways to obtain consent and thereby satisfy TCPA’s requirement. We have successfully represented a telemarketing service provider accused of making millions of deceptive calls to consumers. In addition, we successfully defended two federal class actions involving TCPA claims, have handled pre-litigation claim resolutions, and routinely advise clients on TCPA rights and obligations, compliance and best practices.
